He’ll give her what she needs . . .
Addison Williams isn’t looking for romance, but when she encounters an eavesdropping stranger on an adjoining hotel balcony, she figures she’s due a little fun. She just hadn’t reckoned on the “fun” escalating so quickly to “out of control.” One minute she’s flirting with a whiskey-graveled voice in the dark, the next that same voice is telling her to do things. Hot, wicked things.
Cup-winning hockey player Ford “Killer” Callaghan can’t believe he let the anonymous woman who blew his mind slip away into the night. He’ll track her down because once could never be enough—even if discovering her identity places her strictly out of bounds.
Stolen kisses. Secret hook-ups. Deliciously forbidden in every way. Can a passion that started in the dark find a lifetime of love in the light?
If you’ve ever read anything by Kate Meader, then you’re in familiar territory but if you haven’t, then hold on to your hats or get them blown off. IN SKATES TROUBLE has got all the fun stuff that will keep you turning the pages very quickly – sizzling passion, snarky and witty dialogue, well-developed characters and a really enjoyable story. This story was so hot it should come with a warning label.
Ford Callaghan is not the stereotypical meathead jock who’s all brawn and no brains. He’s very mature and focused, knows what he wants and is willing to compromise his job security to get it.
For Addison Williams, getting out of her marriage was the first step to reclaiming her life and her career after life as a trophy wife and she’s definitely not interested in giving up her new-found independence for another man, especially a younger man, even if he rocks her world sexually.
Surprisingly, Ford is nothing like she expects and he just keeps poking holes in her defenses, but her ex is his boss and will destroy Ford’s career in revenge, so it’s best to not get involved with him. But with Ford willing to give it all up for her, will she be bold enough to choose to be with him?
My expectations every time I pick up a book by Ms. Meader are high and I am yet to be disappointed. I enjoyed the creative first meeting between the characters and the fact that the focus of this story was not the age difference between them or Addy’s body stats, but about two people with explosive chemistry deciding if more was worth fighting for.
There is a lot to enjoy in these few pages and if anything, has made me eager for the rest of the series.
